Sacred Heart Goals

I see Goal IV lived out in our school through the amazing friendships that have been made. I always see people looking out for one another. M. Dowdle ‘19

I see Goal III being lived out at NCDS every day in the simple things people do: helping pick up books, making stall stories, and going out of their way to comfort someone. I see it in the selflessness between friends and classmates in the way they all accept one another. A. Beard ‘20
